Wiccan views of divinity

God the Father was symbolized as the Sun, his consort was symbolized alternately as either the Moon or the Earth, and the "Lord" was viewed as their offspring: the Son of the Sun; a living representative of God on Earth. Wiccan views of divinity are generally theistic, and revolve around a Goddess and a God, thereby being generally dualistic, (with the Goddess given primacy in Dianic Wicca). Some Wiccans are polytheists, believing in many different deities taken from various 'pagan' pantheons, while others would believe that, in the words of Dion Fortune, "all the Goddesses are one Goddess, and all the Gods one God". Some see divinity as having a real, external existence; others see the Goddesses and Gods as archetypes or thoughtforms within the collective consciousness. Gardnerian Wicca as a denomination is primarily concerned with the priestess or priest's relationship to the Goddess and God.
